Renovation Sold in Bed-Stuy: 624 Greene Avenue

People casually talk about where they will & won't go in Brooklyn.  West of Nostrand and south of Gates have always been some easy criteria for the property hunt wish list, but we already told you Bed-Stuy waits for no man.  While would-be buyers draw arbitrary lines around neighborhoods, real buyers are taking down some of the next-best properties in the area.  624 Greene Avenue is a great look at 4-stories of renovated brownstone that just sold in the neighborhood for a value price.  When you want a sleek owner's triplex with a garden rental that's gut renovated with original details retained where possible, it doesn't get much better than this.  And where else are you going to find this under $1M besides Bed-Stuy?

If you missed 296 Halsey Street, you should've been all over 624 Greene Avenue.  Call us suckers for dark wide-plank floors, shiny new materials, high ceilings, skylights, washer/dryers, and modern bathrooms - but we're digging the blend here.

We're even feelin' the glass wall in the staircase... you don't see that everyday.

Overall... simple, tasteful, and affordable.  Maybe every last detail isn't the way you'd have it done, "and if you can do it better than me, then you do it."  With more projects upcoming from these developers throughout the area, we're eager to see what they do next.

Pro's:  renovated 4-story brownstone, under $1M, stylish upgrades & finishing touches abound

Con's:  location isn't everyone's drothers, backyard isn't everyone's taste, gone already

Ideally:  keep your eyes open for buys this nice
